“[A]s a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth” (Eph. 1:10).
As I watch the news story about our Sun spinning, I marvel even more at the grace toward believers that will unfold in eternity (Eph. 2:7)! All things in the universe will be united together in Christ, in a sense we do not fully understand as finite creatures (3:20-21). Simultaneously it will involve the Spirit dwelling in us corporately (Eph. 2:21-22), being filled with all of the fullness of God (1:23; 3:19), receiving back from the Lord good for the good we do on earth (6:8), and being one flesh like Adam and Eve (5:31-32).
As one married 25 years, I am very excited about the marriage of Christ to his Bride – including our spinning with the Sun through the Son – and the unspeakable, everlasting joy this means for us.
